Perfect Conditions for Les Orres Skiers

Thirty nine students enjoyed perfect skiing conditions during their nine day trip to Les Orres in the French Alps during the Easter break.

The trip, organised by the College’s Physical Education Department through Cornish company, Emental Ski, saw students of differing abilities, from beginner to competent skiers, spend six full days on the slopes improving their skills.

Elemental Ski organised for students to stay in a ski-in-ski-out hotel in the popular Alps resort, arranging full days in ski school with English-speaking instructors. This, coupled with the incredible weather and slope conditions, saw students improving their technique and confidence throughout their stay.

The trip has proved to be so successful that bookings for a similar trip next year are already over half full after only twenty four hours of being available.

Team Leader of Physical Education, Jamie Salter, said of the trip: “Our students were amazing on the trip. Both their progress on the slopes and their impeccable behaviour was a real pleasure to see. The Managing Director of Elemental Ski couldn’t have been more complimentary about our student cohort and they were incredible ambassadors for our College.”

Year 9 trip participant, Ewan Bedford, thoroughly enjoyed his time on the slopes: “The trip was great; we had the chance to learn a new skill – I had never skied before but by the end of the trip, I was skiing down red runs. I met new people and made new friends; it was such an amazing opportunity to be able to go and I hope to be able to go back to Les Orres in the future.”
